Wonderful property on PEI

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Briarwood for two weeks. The house has a lot of space, 7 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 living areas, and a huge eat in kitchen and full dining area. The laundry is on the second floor and one of the bedrooms has a balcony access with a great view of the river. There are two more bedrooms on the third floor. We loved the space and the house was immaculate. There are two sets of stairs for the second floor access (one at each end of the house). The Inmans were wonderful hosts! The wood accents were beautiful and the decor really made the house special. The beds were comfortable and we spent a lot of time looking through the books and pictures at the house. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it highly.

The house is only two minutes from Alberton with a great view of the river. Shopping and restaurants in Alberton are convenient (we visited the Bakery and Sidewalk Cafe regularly). This is a great location for exploring Prince County on the island. The Rodd Mill River golf course is only about 10 minutes away.
